I think this is an hot question. In fact this is what the WP-iCal
does: it has a field in the admin to put your future begin and stop
Your reasoning seems fine: I usually write a post that talks about a
future event so I would like to have my .ics pointing to that event,
but I would like to have my post have $now as post_date...
